Mid Atlantic

Written on the 11th, in the middle of Flight NZ6 enroute to Montreal.

It’s 3:06am NST and I have “slept” for as long as I’m likely on this flight. I was comfortable, but I’d get leg twitches from the planes movement, and it would jolt me. Maybe next time drugs might be good.

My inmates on this flight are Roger (left) and Bec (right). I talked to Roger for a bit at the beginning of the flight, but things have been in “sleep” mode for a while.

Channel 6 of the Air New Zealand radio, is “The Blue Room” and it’s playing a great mix of disco, funk and house. This is partly why I’ve started the lappy up, because to use my in seat screen turns the music off, and it’s just too funky.

I’m on a Boeing 747-400. It sure carries a lot of people. Matt is somewhere near the front. He sweet talked the check-in lady (a fellow British) and he got a emergency exit seat with extra leg room. I don’t want extra leg room, it’s my elbows and shoulders that are out of space.

Talking of Roger, he was a former Cat employee, small world. He came to NZ to do a motor bike tour. Got a bunch of bad weather, so had to ride in wet leathers, not the nicest way to spend a trip.

Don’t know a thing about Bec, other than she is gluten intolerant. I saw the hostesses bring out the special meals first, and noticed her put the food tray down. Thought she’s keen, but I didn’t dawn on me she maybe one of the early feeders.

What would be cool is to have some form of in flight network, where the current playing music is displayed. Then I would have an idea what to look out for. What with iTunes now been in NZ and me also now having a CC.

hmm. Cant thinking of much more to write about, other than the 3 fl. oz. rules are stupid. I sort of raised my “it’s going to far“ thought to Roger but he went quite, so I dropped it quick. Didn’t need my seat buddy pissed with me after the first 30 minutes, of a 12 hour trip.

4:02am Oh dear, the music is just a loop. My eyes are tired, I agree the Liquid People - Son of Dragon is a great song. I’m just not going to stick around to hear the name of the also really good song just before it,….
